From a find in the 1960s, such material is no longer available on the market. These are unusual in that they are length-wise cross-section of large rhodochrosite stalactites.
The first measures 7 x 4 x 2 ½ (weight 1996.5 grams (4.4 lbs). The second measures 7 ½ x 4 x 2 ½ (weight 2536.4 grams (5.6 lbs). These would make an excellent addition to any collection of rhodochrosites.(2)
